The fourth International Workshop on Metallic Nano-Objects (MNO 2018) will be held at the University Lyon 1 from 5th to 7th of November 2018.

This workshop will be built on the success of the previous editions (Saint-Etienne 2012, Lille 2014, Lyon 2016). It aims to provide an overview on recent advances and challenges in the development of metallic nano-objects and their applications. Academics from various national and international universities and institutes are expected to participate to the workshop. During these three days, invited and submitted talks will be given by key expert speakers on the elaboration, assembly, manipulation, modeling and characterization of metallic nano-objects, as well as on their applications.
